SUPERKOMBAT: New Heroes Results

The fourth SUPERKOMBAT season kicked off on March 29th with a New Heroes event, where in the featured headliner, Cedric Manhoef’s tussle against local hero Amansio Paraschiv ended in a majority draw.

The event went down at the Olimpia Sports Hall in Ploiesti, Romania.

Paraschiv used his Boxing skills to great effect from the get-go. But after losing the first round, Cedric Manhoef, a protege of Melvin Manhoef, made a comeback on the judges’ scorecards in round two after knocking Paraschiv down with a massive knee. The Romanian fighter started the third frame with a huge flurry, but Manhoef stood his ground and resisted the onslaught. Eventually, the fight was declared a draw, and Manhoef retained the New Heroes belt he won in November last year.

In the co-main-event of the night, former Cruiserweight champ Bogdan Stoica was beaten to the punch by Spain’s Jorge Loren. In the first round, Loren threw a liver kick to which Stoica claimed was illegal, and below his belt. Replays, however, indicated that the kick was legal, and Stoica was deducted a point for simulation and another one point for a non-combat rule. In the final stanza, Loren went hunting for a finish, forcing his opponent to be counted twice. But, he had to settle for a decision victory in the end.

WAKO Amateur world champ, Miljan Vidovic, market his SUPERKOMBAT debut in style with an impressive win against multi-time Kyokushin champ, Mirel Iacob. In another super-fight, Danut Hurduc continued his road to the World Grand Prix series by scoring a TKO win against Turkey’s Ibo Efe. Romania’s rising star Cristian Ristea won again by a brutal KO, a left hook at the end of the second round which signaled immediate lights out for Romano Romasco.
